In this time and on this planet, the collective focus is geared towards logic and compressed finite concepts which leads to a lack of understanding, and ultimately to fear. This creative, heart centered and freedom loving energy that is associated with the Feminine is not something that most people pay too much attention to in our Patriarchal minded world. In fact, in most circumstances the unfortunate goal is the suppression of these abstract and right brained qualities. We have placed far too much emphasis on living up to Masculine ideals, to the degree that it is not at all possible to maintain a balanced reality that honors all things and all people.
In our society, the mother and the role she plays is highly fragmented and deeply undervalued. So much so that females and mothers in most places have confusion over the roles that they are ‘supposed’ to play in their families, in their communities, for their children and most importantly for self, as they continually seek their worth from outside of themselves. As if there was actually a ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ way to be, to feel, to live and to love. We have forgotten our intuition and the inherent goodness that comes from living in the heart. This awareness and subsequent resolution is long past due.
The relationship with one’s mother is akin to the relationship one has to the Goddess. Personally, I place great importance on this. As many of you are aware I spend much of my time mending, nurturing and strengthening this bond and my connection with the Divine Feminine and through correspondence, the one with my own mother as well. One can easily say that this is the foundation and focus of my life. Knowing this, Mother’s Day is deeply significant to me since I am a daughter and I have daughters; since I am a mother and I have mothers; and since I am here pathworking on this planet, doing the Goddess’ work. The Goddess, the Earth and each of our ancestral mothers has provided all of us with nurturing, abundance and unconditional love even under the most adverse conditions no matter what humanity has done to thwart our perception throughout the eons of time, and whether we choose to maintain those illusions or not.
To my own mother: I honor and commend you for the work you have done and in how far you have come in restoring the collective wounds of the Feminine within yourself, and in everything you do. This path is not for the weary and is often an invisible journey no matter how meaningful the steps taken are. Your strength to turn against the crowd and march to the beat of your own drum, your courage to put yourself out there to try new things and find what feels most right for you, your persistence to break down old beliefs and long conditioned ideals within yourself, and your ongoing journey towards greater self love and self care is what I admire most about you. Doing this work has most certainly assisted me in my path, the path my daughters will walk, and whether anyone else in our family recognizes it or not – you have also assisted every single one of them just by being the change. I am grateful to be walking beside you. And I am proud to be your daughter in this life.
Happy Mother’s Day to you, mom, and to the rest of the blossoming goddess’ out there! I am sending my love and respect to each and every one of you.
